Remi Kanazi imbues the spoken word with collective HURT of Palestinians. If you hear him, you will agree Kanazi deserves description as "…a voice which refuses to be silenced…" He writes and performs his political poetry on squelched topics of Human Rights, Palestine, Iraq, and Islam-O-phobia. He is about HUMANIST takedown of OPPRESSION that swarms from US-Mexico border to Afghanistan to Iraq to Palestinian. Underground hip-hop inspired him along with artists Suheir Hammad and Carlos Andres Gomez. Memorable lines: "Just because the house is beautiful doesn't mean the bones you built it on have fully decomposed.” "Every time I think of 9/11, I see burning flesh, Dripping off the bones, Of Iraqi children in Fallujah." "I don’t want to coexist. I want to exist as a human being. And, justice will take care of the rest." "Israel's LEFT is about as alive as Ariel Sharon."
